Chapterfest 21 feat. Twerps + Dick Diver Collaboration

Chapter Music turns twenty-one in 2013, so to celebrate our coming of age, we’ve curated a night of new and unexpected pleasures for this year’s Melbourne Music Week, aptly entitled Chapterfest 21! At the Residence, MMW’s custom-built festival hub at Birrarung Marr, Chapter flagship bands Twerps and Dick Diver will come together for a special collaborative set, which could involve covers, instrument swapping or all-in jams, but could be just about anything really!

Suave pop-meister Geoffrey O’Connor will also preview songs from his forthcoming second album, while the rest of the lineup showcases Chapter’s freshest new signings, namely medieval power rock trioBushwalking, psych-pop dreamers the Ancients, swanky art star Darren Sylvester and scratchy pop genii the Stevens.So come help us celebrate our 21st birthday in awesome Melbourne Music Week style!
